and a hat for 38 bucks. >> add a cup of coffee and a hot dog. >> while we use the word trousers, bob pisani is here watching what's good morning, bob. >> happy monday, everybody. did you notice the market. nice rally here. again, the market is demonstrated that it believes a deal on the fiscal cliff is coming. i know. i didn't hear it over the weekend. headline risk was all anybody wanted to talk about on friday. if anybody says that a deal is not happening or it's going nowhere, we could wake up down 15 points on the s&p on monday. guess what? boehner said the deal is going nowhere. now, when i call the bulls on this, they say, bob, they didn't say a deal was off. they just said so far the negotiations are going nowhere. the market still believes that a deal is coming and it's going to be a substantive deal. instead and by the way, geithner insisted on tax rates issues. looks like there may be something happening eventually. we didn't fall apart on the whole thing. even futures weren't down overnight. instead we rally on a little bit overnight on the greek deal and for those that don't kno
to republican senator bob corker. >> there is a growing group of folks that are looking at this and realizing we don't have a lot of cards as it relates to the tax issue before year end. a lot of people are putting forth a theory and i actually think it has merit where you go in and give the president the 2% increase that he's talking about, the rate increase on the top 2% and all of a sudden the shift goes back to entitlements. >> so senator corker, john, is part of a growing number of republicans who are saying that. let's cave on income tax rates. maybe not go all the way up to where the white house and senate democrats want. but let's give some on this so we can talk about entitlement reform, reforming medicare, reforming social security. this came on the heels of some developments on friday. remember house speaker john boehner came out and said i have no progress. this isn't a progress report. i have no progress to report. but then you also saw maybe the white house signalling that they're negotiable on just how much the rates go up because senator joe biden indicated that as well. >> and m
government as he said in the quote. may not be your cup of tea. bob beckel, former campaign manager. andrea tanteros, news day columnist and both co-hosts of "the five." andrea, you do you have a problem with that? >> yeah i do. i wonder if i studied history to look at eastern europe to see how welcome nism worked for those countrys? the reason he is saying that, mr. immelt, our jobs czar sent a lot of ge's business over to china. we heard during this campaign, this grueling presidential campaign, martha, president obama attacked mitt romney for outsourcing when his jobs czar, jeff immelt, sent, couple of examples. one company in wisconsin, the summer over to china. another light bulb factory in virginia over to china. i mean ge got $1.2 billion in stimulus funds. they send the jobs over to china. no wonder he likes china so much. martha: i mean a lot of people have the problem with the way this jobs czar handled things in his own business and feel it is not reflective of somebody working really hard to encourage capitalism and to encourage a growing u.s. economy, bob? >> first of all, andr
's the chief of staff to governor bob macdonald. to denise northrop came from state of oklahoma where she is chief of staff to governor mary phalen and roxanne white is joining us from the great state of colorado where she's chief of staff to governor john hicken looper. and so their full bios are on the pamphlets and nare all very accomplished professionals in their careers. i'm going to ask roxanne to start and we can come down this way. >> great. first, thank you for the report. i think it provides a good framework for all of us as states to continue to look at the challenges facing us. we have been engaged in pension reform in colorado. our pension fund is about 69% solvent. we did major reform in the last administration. and we are now in court trying to defend that reform. our pension costs by 2020 will go to 22%. and so to give you a sense of how far behind we were as a state, if we lose in court and the battle is whether or not we as a state have a right to ratchet down the colas for our state employees, then we could see a need to go to 25% of compensation by 2020. so it's fairly
, bob, it's a fantasy. all of this goldilocks stuff is a fantasy. you cannot get strong growth with rising taxes and lower spending. that's not going to happen. you cannot have unlimited stimulus that is not going to cause inflation. that's just a fantasy. so there's a real fight going on. none the less, have you noticed, gold being sold, buying the euro, it seems a weird trade going on here affecting the markets. this was going on yesterday as well. this may have to do with the yen. the yen is hitting new lows against the dollar. it's hitting new lows against the euro. have you seen what's going on with the japanese elections? the new prime minister told the bank of japan we want more stimulus. guess who's meeting thursday? the bank of japan. japan's exports fall for the sixth straight month. you are going to see the bank of japan on thursday announce new stimulus measures. you're going to see efforts to weaken the yen. it's going to get even weaker. that is the old yen carry trade. that may be where some of this money is coming from to do the odd little trades that seem to be

on the wealthy, the top 2%. listen now this is your colleague, senator bob corker of tennessee. you'll hear him use the word folks, we believe he's talking about his fellow republicans, such as yourself. take a listen. >> if there is a growing group of folks looking at this and realizing we don't have a lot of cards as it relates to the tax issue before year end, a lot of people are putting forth a theory and i actually think it has merit where you go and give the president the 2% increase that he's talking about, the rate increase on the top 2%, and all of a sudden the shift goes back to entitlement. >> senator snowe, i've read that you've expressed similar sentiments. do you sense more republicans moving in that direction? >> well, at least from the standpoint that, you know, it is possible that what could happen is that we pass the tax cuts for the middle class, that's what, you know, i've been -- get that off the table. we all agree on that. it is not an issue in disagreement. then you can focus on the top 2% of the american people who pay the top tax rates and, of course, entitlement spend

making veterans in their own backyards in their own families. >>> nbc sports bob costas created a whole lot of controversy last sunday night while coming on the news about kansas city belcher having killed his girlfriend before taking his own life. he says if belcher didn't possess a gun he and cassandra would be alive. kostas spent the week defending his comments. here he is on "o'reilly factor." >> i never used the words gun control. i quoted from a column by jason wit lock who was in kansas city for a long time. now is on the fox sports web site in which he mentioned credibly a gun culture in this country. it plays itself out in many ways but it's a mentality about and toward guns that almost always leads to tragedy rather than safety. >> not always leads to tragedy. i think you are a great sports caster. i do. i thought you did a terrific job at the olympics. for the same reason i don't try to do commentary on sports you might want to do a little brushing up on the facts before you comment on the gun culture. 4,000 times a day in this country 4,000 times a day guns are used to preve
: it was voted down three consecutive times. host: here's an e-mail from bob and florida. making the economic argument against right-to-work state. and then there are people who have an economic argument on the other side of it. if we read a piece earlier in the washington post on what right-to-work states due to the broader economy. -- due to the state's economy? and now this isn't egypt. on the front page of the washington post, amid this turmoil, aid for egypt is on its way. the u.s. and a coalition of international lenders are pushing ahead with billions of dollars of loans and other help for egypt and neighboring states. so, money going to the country despite the violence there. and on the domestic front, the richmond times dispatch, courtesy of the newseum, health care law includes from a surprising $60 coverage free. bob in rapid city, south dakota, republican caller. caller: whee are a right-to- work state. in the past week we had an article in the newspaper that we are 16th in the nation in income. we averaged 44,000. where is the nation averages 41,000. so it's just not true that a
toss it to bob. bank of america continues its tear up 1.75% new 52-week high in today's session of 1064. on our radar this morning. let's send it over to bob with more on what's moving. >> happy friday. what a week. futures popped ten points on the jobs report even though october was revised downward rather notably. a good open. materials, techs, financials leading the way. i wish i could be more optimistic on the fiscal cliff. a gloomy commentary this morning. expectations are getting narrow. grand bargains are out and the idea of maybe the fallback position is pass a simple tax bill like the one the senate had. the simple bill here. you have tax cuts for middle class but not for people over 250,000. you have dividends and capital gains going to 23.8%. that's the senate bill. and that's it. you leave out estate tax and leave out payroll tax cut and unemployment extension and you leave that out. no delay in the sequestration. this is pretty thin gruel. this is what's tossed about and talked about today overall. is that enough to satisfy the markets? remember, the two requirements, got t
's a question, though, willie, whether you want the job or not. >> right. >> i asked bob riley, i've said this 1,000 times, it seems extraordinarily important if you're a union member in the northeast, and like me, you want your factories running again. i asked bob riley, i don't understand, why did mercedes go to tuscaloosa county, alabama, instead of filling up the factories in connecticut? 15 minutes away from yale. or in rhode island. 20 minutes away from brown. i mean, right by some of the most highly trained, brilliant minds in the world. that's easy. the work force rules are so insane there, there's no way that mercedes or bmw or airbus would ever dream of going to those states. do you want the jobs or do you not want the jobs? >> and that plays out all over the south in harold's home state of tennessee, auto plant comes back, you get a bunch of jobs but at a very low wage. so the question is do you want to lower ourselves to the global standard of wages so that you have many more jobs -- >> that's a better option. >> that question has to be answered -- >> stronger middle class in union s
we're willing to go book to 39.6%, as bob corker said over the weekend? is it helpful? >> i think it is hopeful for the republicans on the revenue side we're willing to move. i believe in capping deductions. bowles-simpson is bipartisan proposal. "gang of six" senators, three democrats, three republicans. they didn't raise rates. they capped deductions to. raising rates is partisan political trophy for obama. i don't want to go down that road only if they do entitlement reform. i don't hear any democrat of note hering what i would do on the entitlement side. if i were republicans i would be quiet for a while and see what the democrats put on the table for entitlement reform. >> big debate last week republicans saying we will do exactly with you said. we're only going to do cuts in deductions. we'll eliminate loop hoses. -- loopholes. that is what happened over the weekend. seems like over the weekend it dissolved into accepting of raising tax rates. the president said there is no deal unless i get that. that is what i ran on. american people are expecting that. >> here is where th
though some republicans seem to be budging. that is 5:00 p.m. eastern here on fox business. lori: bob corker. i can see in the fluffy slippers. melissa: what did bob corker have to do that? lori: he is the one that suggested that the republicans should accept wealthy tax increases and move on to entitlements. one big money strategist says don't give up on different den stocks quite yet. halfer ford chief investment officer hank smith joins tracy and ashley next on. don't miss it >> we have three weeks of gains and kicking off this week with up arrows. not too far the unchanged line. that seems to be the trend. we're moving higher, slowly but surely. let's take a look at names very key here. watch, first go across the board. the best of the bunch. tech is beaten down lately. now it is coming back. up one quarter of 1%. look at mcdonald's. out with same-store sales for the month of november. much better than, they beat the street for november. october was a terrible month for mcdonald's globally. it was their first month of same store sales they saw a decline in nine years. everybody wa
's bob costas created a controversy while talking about the kansas city chief player jovan belcher killing his girlfriend before taking his life. he says if belcher didn't have a gun he and cassandra would be alive and here he is trying to explain his comments on the o'reilly factor. >> i didn't call for any specific prohibition on guns and i voted from a column by jason whitlock and now on the fox supports website, in which he mentioned a gun culture in this country and it plays itself out in many ways, but it's about and toward guns that almost always leads to tragedy. >> not always leads to tragedy, in fact, mr. costas, i think you're a great sports caster, i really do, i thought you did a terrific job for the olympics, for the same reason i don't try to do commentary on sports you might want to do some brushing up on the facts before you comment on what you call the gun culture. here is the fact. over 4,000 times a day, in this country. 4,000 times a day, guns are use today prevent a crime by private citizens. in fact, there is 50 times more of a likelihood that a private citiz
was senator bob corker. here is what he had to say. [video clip] >> realizing that we do not have a lot of cards when it comes to the tax issue before the end of the year. it will leave the presidency and the senate in the hands of the democrats. many people are putting forward a theory that has merit where you go against the president with a 2% increase on the top 2%. all of a sudden the shift goes back to entitlements. all of a sudden once you give him that tax rate, lesser that what he has been talking about, the focus shifts to entitlements and puts us in a place where we can actually do something to save this nation. i am actually beginning to believe that that is the best route for us to take. host: senator corker, saying that there are more republicans willing to do that. you heard him lay out the strategy there. lots of debate in washington about who should give and how much. we are asking you to weigh in on that conversation and tell us what you are willing to sacrifice. this comes from a piece from a few days ago, from "national journal magazine." it is about americans not wil
report, seasonaled justments will be a huge factor relative to sandy. >> bob and michelle are here. and my biggest question, if all the companies are pulling the give dends forward, the u.s. government thinks it will be taking in x amount based on what they would normally get for dividends plus whatever the hirer rate is going to be. it will drop substantially, correct? >> you'll get leads and lags in the revenues. a lead into this year, a lag next year. pretty obvious how this works. in terms of tax planning, let hope they know to take account of this. the argument will argue how great this is working and when there's a shortfall, how did that happen. so i hope we don't go that route. but this administration has been very big on these kinds of things, basically distorting what's going on and this current thing about the mandate really bothers me. so i woouldn't -- >> i think the challenge is being forward looking. there's big challenges not just because the challenge in terms of getting all the information, but also if win terms of trying make the budget numbers look good and you
bob corker was on our air earlier today and he laid out sort of what the political challenges here for republicans. take a listen. >> it sure seems to me that we're negotiating about something that makes it appear that all we are trying to do is protect the rich. er with not at all focused on entitlement changes which is the only thing that will save our country. >> so when the speaker now briefs his republican leadership colleagues about whatever was in that meeting yesterday, the trick for him is going to be to present it in a way that he gets there and continues to have support. there is mumbling and grumbling about a particular challenge to speaker boehner about republican colleagues early in the new year. that is something the speaker would like to avoid. he has it find a way to get a deal and keep his job at the same time. all of that is tricky can be tyler. >> thank you very much. let's go to the exclusive patented trade mark cliff-o-meter. are we closer to a deal? no deal. we call it right now, right in the middle. that is closer to a deal than it was late last week. basica
a plant in chattanooga a few months ago, 2,000 new jobs. bob corcoran was down there. 2,000 jobs, every one of which started at $14.50 an hour. >> right. they're not all going to be at -- >> so volkswagen was moving these jobs here because we're the low wage country compared to germany. >> dude, are you suggesting we push these jobs away? >> i'm not. >> i would rather americans have a shot at a $17 an hour job than having it in china. >> i agree. >> find a way to do better. i actually agree with you. but you have to understand the consequences are pretty severe for american lifestyles. >> again, though, i'm sorry, mike, but the consequences are, we have two choices, we can't get 1965 wages, we either have these jobs in china or lexington, either have them in alabama or germany and this is at least for some of -- a chance for younger americans to get some good jobs. >> joe, if you're taking a job that pays $14.50 an hour. it means one of two things, a, you don't have a job so you're getting a job or b, you're taking a job that's higher paying job. come on, this is good news! 1 $14. $14.5
him to in michigan, senator inouye made his two lifelong friends, one senator bob dole, who as we know, became majority leader here in the senate and the republican nominee for president of the united states. and his other lifetime friend is the late senator phil hart, who was known as the conscience of the senate and the hart building, the massive senate office building, is named after him. asked by his son why after being classified as an enemy alien he and the members of the 442nd fought so heroically, senator inouye said in his usual, calm man, for the children. and for the children there could be no finer role model than senator dan inouye. he was a recipient of the medal of honor, a congressional gold medal, the highest honor can bestow. he served the distinguished service cross, a bronze star for valor and, of course, a purple heart. dan inouye showed the same dedication in congress he displayed on if battlefield. i want to take just a little bit here, mr. president, and talk about a meeting that i had, i mentioned it very previously last night but it was ten days ago. i knew se
. bob costas admits he made a mistake addressing half time during sunday night football and that he didn't have time to flesh out his thought properly. last night on bill o'reilly "the factor" he was given moore time. >> i thought it was self-evident it was a domestic violence case, on retrospect i don't back up on anything i said. i think it might be more effective if i said look, if we're looking for perspective on this we're going to have a serious discussion within sports, ongoing, not five minutes of fully tears about it, but a discussion about domestic violence, about the culture of game itself. that would have been more effective and would have led to an understanding of what i was coming from. but i was talking about a gun culture, i never used the word second amendment. stuart: all right, interesting stuff and we're going to stay on the gun issue. a twitter war broke out over the second amendment. our next guest, carol roth went on piers morgan to hash out their differences face-to-face. >> what i don't expect is the interpretation of a lesson on the second amendment of the cons
communicators." >> we just saw pennsylvania senator bob casey. >> the committee will come to order. we want to thank everyone for being here today. i did not have a chance to personally greet our witnesses, but i will have time to do that later. i want to thank both of our witnesses for being here. i will have an opening statement that i will make, and then i will turn it to dr. burgess. i know that vice chairman brady will be her as well. we know the challenges that we confront here in congress on a whole range of issues, which are sometimes broadly described under the umbrella of the terminology, fiscal cliff. when we confront those difficult challenges, we have to ask ourselves a couple of basic questions. one of the basic questions we must ask is, what will be the result and will be the impact as it relates to middle income families? what will happen to them in the midst of all these tough issues we have to work out? we know there is broad agreement that going over the so-called fiscal cliff would jeopardize the economic recovery. it would do that by increasing taxes on families, haltin
are pleased to have our distinguished colleagues chuck schumer from new york, bob mendez from new jersey and i believe senator gillibrand will be here shortly. the senators have been a strong partners in this rebuilding effort. it is a great privilege to work together. we are really strong team we share the value of a quick action and sufficient resources to get this job done. as i mentioned, we are in the largest transportation. in the country and it takes diligence and skill of our friends and colleagues. senator schumer. >> thank you, mr. chairman. first, thank you for this hearing but also for your great partnership. new york and new jersey were together as a bipartisan by-date delegation along with our colleagues from rest of the northeast to deal with this awful, awful devastation. it is good you are in so many important positions that will have a lot of say in how we deal with this and we're grateful for that as well as your leadership. thank you, ranking member, senator wicker. west hamilton beach was in my old congressional district. it is one of the few volunteer fire departments in
on unemployment insurance that they're no longer employable at all. host: bob receives unemployment insurance. tell us about your situation. caller: i'm a single-earner, and thank god i have made a good living. assuming i could get a job, and nothing against the folks at fast food or nothing like that, but if you were making a minimum amount of money, with my situation, i would be in the street using that job. i could not pay my bills. i am not talking about luxuries. i rent. i would not be able to pay that. thank god unemployment insurance is geared to what you used to make, so that, and by the way, i am in my 60's. it is not easy. without that amount coming in that is based on what i used to make, i would not be able to survive. i would be industry. -- in the street. host: mr. josh bivens, a chance on this one. guest: that points out that unemployment insurance is a form of social insurance. people take lower wages because the employer has to pay tax. they pay into the system while things are going well, and if they hit a rough spot they hit a benefit that somewhat match its previous earnin
than we do of linking appropriations. host: let's hear from bob in minnesota, republican caller. caller: there is a topic that nobody wants to talk about. it is the interest rate. the interest paid on our national debt. currently, most of the debt is under short term, under 1%. it is manipulated by the federal reserve and the treasury department. it is going to go from a historic -- $1.50 trillion in interest annually on the national debt. how is that going to impact the military industrial complex in the near future when that actually comes to be? guest: that clearly is a ticking time bomb for any part of the federal government. we are in a period of unusually low interest rates. when they rise, it is going to be a body blow to the national politics and the country. the jump from 1% to 7% is such a massive increase in taxes that the only thing i can think of is greece. host: what does it mean for the pentagon? guest: greece used to be one of the only three non-u.s. countries in nato that was spending 2% of gdp on national security. they are now below that because they cannot afford it.
